Nobel prize laureate Wole Soyinka said he has fulfilled his pledge to throw away his US residency green card and leave the country if Donald Trump won the United States presidential election.
This he disclosed to AFP at an education conference at the University of Johannesburg.
“I have already done it, I have disengaged (from the United States). I have done what I said I would do,”.
“I had a horror of what is to come with Trump… I threw away the (green) card, and I have relocated, and I’m back to where I have always been”.
He also said he would not discourage others from applying for a green card.
“It’s useful in many ways. I wouldn’t for one single moment discourage any Nigerians or anybody from acquiring a green card… but I have had enough of it,”.
